If you are caring for a parent, a friend or a spouse and have questions about resources and supports, an program later this month should offer plenty of information.
Tri-Cities Caregivers Connections is hosting an information session on Sept. 15 at Coquitlam's Glen Pine Pavilion that will include presentations by Fraser Home Health, a representative from Alzheimer Society of BC, a physiotherapist, an occupational therapist and a lawyer. Topics for discussion will include:
navigating the health system as an advocate;
home supports and housing options;
resources and programs that are available through the Alzheimer Society of BC;
memory loss and signs of dementia;
how to make the home a safe place;
a caregiver's legal concerns;
understanding a power of attorney.
The program runs from 1 to 4 p.m. Sept. 15. Cost is $5 per person. To register, call 604-927-6940. For Information, call Linda Western, program co-ordinator, at 605-927-7917.
